SPFM Daily Challenge: “One day, you will be old enough to start reading fairytales again.” – C. S. Lewis

Hello!

Today I’m continuing with the Self-Published Fantasy Month Daily Challenge (See image below or for more information check Here). Day two’s prompt is: “One day, you will be old enough to start reading fairytales again.” – C. S. Lewis. While there aren’t so much fairytales in the world of the Citadel, most children are raised with tales of the Gods and so today I’m sharing part of the origin myth.

Hello!

Somehow we have reached the 1st September already and while I’m not quite sure how that happened, I’m excited because that means we’re officially into Self-Published Fantasy Month. There will be a lot happening here on the blog, across on twitter and on The Guild Discord Server, so please do check it out and feel free to join in.

Today I am kicking off with the Self-Published Fantasy Month Daily Challenge (See image below or for more information check Here).

Cover Reveal: The Ravyn’s Words (The Citadel 0.5) – Rowena Andrews

Hello!

So this is one of the most exciting (and terrifying) posts I’ve ever done on the blog or anywhere, but today I am delighted to reveal the cover for my novella – The Ravyn’s Words which is due for release on the 30th November. And I have to give a massive shoutout to Trudie Skies for giving me the courage to post this (I may have been hovering over the publish button for most of the day!)

Book Summary:

Fate belongs to the Gods. They Weave it. Sing it. Harvest it.

Ravyn was born between life and death, free of the weave of fate. She dreams of distant places and grand deeds far from the eyes of the Gods that she refuses to believe in.

Eleyn is thrice-sworn to the Gods, marked for death and cursed with the knowledge that the Gods are stirring and what that will mean for the world she will leave behind. Unless she can change things, and that means twisting the weave of fate.

But fate is a dangerous thing, especially when it is stolen from the Gods.

The World of the Citadel

Hello!

Today is the start of #WyrdandWonder and the challenge prompt for today is ‘we’re going on an adventure’. I have a book review for Little White Hands by Mark Cushen coming up this afternoon/evening which falls firmly into this prompt.

However, I also wanted to do something a little different – and keep to my goal of talking about my wip in public at least once a week, so here is a whistlestop tour of my world (all maps are in progress – and I’m not sharing my messy handscrawled ones, if only because no one would be able to read the writing on them- including me half the time!)
